In 2003 the transformation of Lang Park to Suncorp Stadium was completed. Owned by Stadiums Queensland, Suncorp is a colosseum type stadium with steep seating tiers, which provide excellent views of the ground from virtually anywhere in the stands. As is common to other stadiums, there are major movement-gaps which divide the structural concrete frame, from top to bottom, at four designed positions around the building. In such a large structure, these gaps have considerable movement. There had been considerable leaking within the failing joints initially installed. By 2016 these gaps were often the cause of water inundation. Duratec Queensland were contracted to replace the seals and cover plates to ensure no water ingress, or trip/slip hazard.

Unison Joint's Aquo P®

Between September 2017, and April 2020 the major movement joints at Suncorp Stadium had the waterproof seals replaced. Unison’s Trademarked Aquo P® was employed to provide a watertight seal. The project included sealing joints in horizontal concourses, and precast seating plats. Movement gap sizes varied extensively: site measurements are taken, and Aquo P® is cut-to-size, manufactured 30% bigger than the gap in our Brisbane factory. The Aquo P®’s ease of reshaping and weld-ability make it a fantastic 100% watertight, high-movement building and seismic movement-joint seal. During the expansion joint refurbishment project, it was imperative to minimise time spent, with gaps open to weather conditions. Fast manufacture time at Unison alleviated concerns. The client has advised he is happy with the outcome (no leaks).
